Dr. Stone, our school superintendent, came to Valmead and read a Dr. Seuss book to my class. Doesn't he look nice in his red and white hat?
Mrs. Austin created a bulletin board so we could display a few stories written my my class. I am so happy to see the progress they have made in writing. We write every day, and it is really paying off. Some are writing 2 or 3 pages at a time now.
I found a cute little snack idea on Pinterest -- the class enjoyed this version of green eggs and ham.
We also made hats -- the children like to wear them down the hall.
A few parents came to our Dr. Seuss Parent Night on Monday -- everyone who participated had a good time, and the children all got a free book to take home.
Next week we will start learning about St. Patrick's Day and soon will celebrate the first day of spring and Easter. The few warm days we had this week make us eager to be finished with the snow and cold. The school year is 2/3 of the way finished -- just a little more than 60 days of school left, but still more to learn before they are ready for first grade!
